Maldives Repeals Spa Ban
No sooner had the ban that would close resort spas in the Maldives taken effect than it was reversed. The stand-off this past week over Islam's role in governing the country is nothing if not dramatic. Fortunately, it looks like it will be business as usual for the spas there. For all those who have yet to experience the Maldive's idyllic islands and their warm and welcoming spas, well, I'd encourage you to do so. There are still very few places where you can indulge in a treatment in an underwater treatment room or a relaxing massage while gazing at the sealife below. I experienced the latter at the Over-Water Spa at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island. It was one treatment I won't soon forget.
